. >> they pitched chef against chef in a throwdown. >> reporter: we're at the ronald reagan building where all these people are waiting to create the delicious creations by the chefs competing in the food fight. it brings the restaurant community together to fight hunger for the d.c. central kitchen. it is a charity and an issue that is close to jose andres's heart. >> it is very simple. we all live in communities. we all want people to do well. sometimes it is people that for some reason, i think we need to put this stigma out. if we are able to give opportunity to people to learn a profession. to be meaningful to the community they live in, people will do well. and that's what this organization celebrates. we help people. we push people forward. people will do very well on their own. to see almost everybody, my friends, support them with the restaurants. support them with their presence. some of my friends, andrew zimmerman, padma, all the tv pros. it feels good. they don't do it because they're going to be like the heroes two hours and they're going to be in the spotlight. they do it becaus
the specifics? do you know exactly what you're doing? >> look at what mitt romney -- look at what ronald reagan and tip o'neill did. they worked together out of a framework to lower tax rates and broaden the base and worked together to fix that. what we're saying is here's our framework. lower tax rates 20%. we raise about $1.2 trillion through income taxes. we forego $1.1 trillion in loopholes and deductions. what we're saying is deny those loopholes and deductions to higher income taxpayers so more of their income is taxed which has a broader base of translation so we can lower tax rates across the board. here's why i'm saying this. what we're saying -- >> i hope i get time to respond. >> you'll get time. >> we want to work with the congress on how best to achieve this. that means successful -- >> no specifics again. >> what we're saying is lower tax rates 20%, start with the wealthy. work with congress to do it. >> you guarantee this math will add up. >> six studies have guaranteed -- six studies have verified this would add up. >> vice president biden. >> i'll come back in a second then, ri
for this microphone was one of ronald reagan's breakthrough moments, the weird moment with clint eastwood may be that as well. >> the big knock against governor romney here is that he walked away from a $5 trillion tax cut plan. he assumes that tax cuts for growth to make the math work, simpson-bowles says his math doesn't add up. that something has to give. you explode the deficit, raise middle class tax cuts, something has to give which is the point that rob was trying to make. >> something has to give. and mike just said maybe the thing that gives is mortgage interest deduction. the single most important thing to middle class american families. and that's going to be -- and we'll get to this later -- that will be a challenge for paul ryan. but, you know, i think that what we are experiencing right now, and we just said it, is that this sort of style over substance is -- i don't think it's going to overtake this race. i think you had a president who was trying to move the facts out. was facing a guy who he hasn't seen before. either mitt romney is completely faking everything he said or he
look even during the big battles and the fights between the democrats and republicans. when ronald reagan came into office and looked at social security. he appointed a bipartisan commission and they studied it for two years. and in 1983, they moved forward to pass legislation to reform social security. so those are the kind of things that you can do. i've seen it when i was governor. when we brought democrats and republicans together, we did the infrastructure. we made the commitment to rebuild california. we did a lot of progress in reducing the greenhouse gases and making a commitment to 33% of renewables in the year 2020. and stem cell research. on and on. and as soon as in 2005 when i thought i could go off by myself, and it's my way or the highway, just like the republican party, we're going to grind it out, it failed miserably. so i learned first hand is that the only action is when both parties come together. >> former governor of california. you understand the demographic shifts in the country very well. the latino population not just in california but throughout the south
. this race might be a lot like 1980 where it's tight until the end and ronald reagan sweeps past jimmy carter. the fact is in 1980 you didn't have early voting. the fact is this race would have been over -- even romney's own people understood. if he didn't perform well in the first debate the race would have been over. it makes it a lot harder to predict with these rolling dates. >> timing may be everything. good to have you both on. >> great to be here. >> you can catch "morning joe" weekdays starting at 6:00 a.m. eastern time. >>> now let's get a look at the morning's other top stories from tom over at the news desk. >> good morning, tamron and lester. good morning, everyone. a mother and four children are homeless but lucky to be alive. their home in castle rock, colorado, was completely destroyed friday but what officials believe was a natural gas explosion. the woman and kids were hurt, but their injuries were said to be non-life threatening. the surrounding homes have been temporarily uninhabitable. >>> another house was badly damaged when an suv crashed into it. the suv plowed through
well because he has the same instincts and principles and view of america's role that ronald reagan did that came to the presidency after being governor of the state of california. mitt understands the need for american leadership. he understands that this president is leading from behind. this president says that wars in the middle east are receding, that the tide of war is receding. well, what's receding in the middle east is american leadership. when you look at afghanistan, iraq, the confrontation with iran, the looming -- the situation in libya where they sent out the -- i mean, on and on, calling that a terrorist attack simulated by a video, crazy. >> but in his speech he said things like we need to be bold and decisive. he said what you said that, we're leading from behind, but that's pretty standard material for a speech like this. did he offer specifics? did he tell voters why he is going to be a game-changer when it comes to foreign policy? >> i'm confident that he did, because, again, america's role in the world has been one of retreat and disarray. >> can you give me an exam
actual. >> i never been done. >> jack kennedy lowered tax rates and increased growth. ronald reagan -- >> now you're jack kennedy. >> reporter: well, it's a busy day for three of the four guys on the ticket here. you've got mitt romney who starts his day in north carolina, hits virginia and meets up though with paul ryan in the evening for a joint event in ohio. joe biden, he's going to paul ryan's home state in wisconsin. president obama actually has sort of a down day at the white house, though he does have dinner with a bunch of campaign supporters. matt? >> all right, chuck todd, thank you very much. rachel maddow is the left of "the rachel maddow show" on msnbc and going into this joe biden needed to steady the ship and calm the democratic side. did he accomplish that? >> democrats are psyched that he had such a good night. you said at the throb was no clear winner, and it may be, but it was very important for the democrats paul ryan not be the clear winner. most democrats, i don't know about independent winners, probably think that joe biden clearly won >> i think the analysis
